#ipkg -v returns:
ipkg: unknown option -v

Furthermore, ar isn't installed on the Z by default (might be why the
install fails?)
And I can't find an arm source or binary package anywhere. Gah.

I used ipkg-build v1.0. What version does the Zaurus use? (ipkg -v)
Maybe your Zaurus distribution uses an older version of ipkg.

This version of ipkg uses AR and TAR. To extract data by hand from the
*.ipk you need to perform the following steps:

# ar -x librt_2.1.3_arm.ipk
# tar -xzvf data.tar.gz

The control.tar.gz has the package information and the post-install  and
post-remove scripts. Further more there is a version file debian-binary.

The preferred way however is using:
# ipkg install librt_2.1.3_arm.ipk

The package is fine. It is as big as I build it about 7K.
